“It is easy being green”

Standard

Quite a few years ago, Kermit & Lena Horne teamed up to sing to us about how it’s not easy bein’ green. They made a good case for their point of view but, I would like to differ somewhat in responding to this week’s photo prompt about the colour Green.

Depending on your perspective, it is really not so difficult!

What is it about green that encourages us to look forward?

To this spring season poet, I am energized by the change of seasons, seeing that life cycle unfold each year, right before my eyes. It is a hopeful chain of events, so encouraging!

Perennials signify that process so well, methinks. Already, with this unusually mild winter, bits of green are bursting forth in the front garden, dedicated to herbs and flowers of the perennial sort. Chives are tallest of all,  as they have been in the previous year, shown here in my photo. Looking forward to clipping a few to top those fresh potatoes!

On a final note, today , Earth Hour day, is the 10th anniversary of turning off the lights for 60 minutes, around the world. It is a small initiative that gives us all a moment to stop & think about our dear planet. Have a good one!
